European ETICS Forum

ETICS Forum has been established as a high-profile European platform for information and communication about thermal insulation. It will be used to present forward-looking energy-efficient methods of construction using ETICS in existing and new buildings. EAE invites politicians, investors, designers & architects, installers, authorities, regulatory boards and manufacturers to join the ETICS Forum.
